Mix together all of the oats, nuts, and seeds in a large bowl and set aside.
Add the almond butter, maple syrup, water, cinnamon, and salt to a small pot. Heat over medium and whisk until combined. (The almond butter should be liquified, but it's okay if it's not totally smooth).
Add the wet ingredients to the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients. Use a rubber spatula to combine. Be sure to scrape the bottoms and sides of the bowl. All of the oats and nuts should be coated with the wet mixture.
Add the raisins to the granola mixture and mix to combine.
Transfer the granola to a lined baking sheet. Use the spatula to spread and press the granola mixture flat.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
Remove the granola from the oven and let cool completely.
Serve the granola right away or break into chunks and store in an airtight container.
If storing, you can let the granola sit out for up to an hour. This will help it dry out more to create crunchy bites. Do not move to the storage container before the granola has cooled completely or it will not get crunchy.
